Buffy vs Edward: Twilight Remixed
In this remixed narrative Edward Cullen from the Twilight Series meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer at Sunnydale High. Itâs an example of transformative storytelling serving as a pro-feminist visual critique of Edwardâs character and generally creepy behavior. Seen through Buffyâs eyes, some of the more sexist gender roles and patriarchal Hollywood themes embedded in the Twilight saga are exposed in hilarious ways. Ultimately this remix is about more than a decisive showdown between the slayer and the sparkly vampire. It also doubles as a metaphor for the ongoing battle between two opposing visions of gender roles in the 21ist century.

it takes a really excellent editor to blend this together so smoothly, and to additionally have an unexpected underlying message of re-contextualizing and thinking about these kinds of popular culture. the vampire/stalker!
